When faced with a decision, what if you asked God to be with you in the outcome of your decision? . . . If you have prayerfully considered all the alternatives and have made what you judge to be the best choice and if you have prayerfully offered that choice to God, you can let go of the worry. Having given the decision to God, now is the time for you to LGLG [Let Go and Let God]. Let it go and get on with your life, certain that God will be working for good.
—Patricia Wilson, Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer (Upper Room Books, 2012)
